I have 4 wilderness system pungos that I am looking to make a little easier to strap down to my trailer’s J-bars. Has anyone used the Sea To Summit Carabiner Tie Down straps? I am looking for opinions as I do not see much for reviews on them. That makes me think that there aren’t a lot of people that like them. They look like they would be MUCH quicker to strap down using J-bars than having to run the strap thru a cam buckle each time. The only issue I can see is that there would only be one line of webbing over the kayak in each place versus the regular two, but they are rated at 600lbs so wouldn’t they be strong enough?
I have used the regular cam straps for years now. They are fine but very slow. I am sure that others will disagree with that, but it is the case with me. I hate spending the time looping them over and threading them back thru the buckles for each kayak. The carabiners seem like they would work great. Thanks for the opinions.
